My Story

Thank you for checking out our website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about our beloved father and husband, Benny.

We will continue to update the journal entries and do our best to keep you informed on how Benny is doing, ways to pray and how to help.

If you'd like to contribute to the mounting expenses you can send money to:

Lake Sunapee Bank
PO Box 274
Andover, NH 03216 

(Be sure to indicate that you'd like your money to go to The Paul (Benny) Benson Fund).

Please do not feel obligated to give in this way.  Your prayers and encouragement mean the world to us, but we wanted to share this information for those interested.
